What Compensation Can My Family Receive From The Manufacturer After Our Mother Died In A Wheelchair Fire?
We are saddened to hear of your loss. It is devastating any time a loved one passes away, but it can be even more upsetting when your mother is taken from you too early—and all because of a company’s negligence. When a defective product causes a fatal injury that company should be held accountable financially.
While no amount of money will take away the horrific event that claimed the life of your mother, holding a negligent company liable will help you collect the damages your family deserves. Any time a company cuts corners and produces a product that causes the public danger, that company should be held accountable in a product defect lawsuit. When the product causes someone’s untimely death, that company should be held liable in a wrongful death lawsuit.
When pursuing a wrongful death claim in Florida, your family may be entitled to the following damages:
- Medical bills
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Lost income
- Future lost wages or expected earnings
- Loss of benefits and inheritance
- Loss of parental guidance
- Loss of guidance and support
- Emotional grief
- Other damages
